Kim Hill got me into blogging last September.
She then got me into Facebook sometime later.
While Facebook has been a nice way to reconnect with people I haven't talked to in a long time, it is also so impersonal to me.
I guess that is the novelty of it. Connect with people, build up your friends list, comment once in a blue moon or don't comment at all, but definetly don't have personal interaction.
I mean, I know there are exceptions. Some people are really on there to connect with old friends. Others, Why? To see how many networks you can build up? And then there is the whole mutual friends, friends you may know, friend suggestions. Why would somebody be friends with so and so and not with you. Why won't so and so not accept my invitation. Why don't they ever leave me a personal comment. Do they even know who I am?
And why do people keep throwing things at me?
Why is the guy that started Facebook so stinking rich now? Why is the art of social networking so alluring?
Well...I like Facebook, but I love Blogger. I like that I can pour out my thoughts here or whine that I don't feel good and then my blogging buddies wish me well. You don't throw me something or add me to some network...you just encourage me. Some of you I am friends with on Facebook and Blogger. When I see you on Facebook I think, "Oh, I know them so much better now because of Blogger."
I like to read about your lives and your thoughts too.
So in the Blogger VS Facebook wars, for me Blogger wins.
Don't even get me started on My Space!
